Going on 100 hours with this game at the time this was written. I'll attempt to give a good review.
First off, let me warn you:
IF YOU RUN A 32-BIT PROCESSOR, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! THIS GAME CRASHES IF YOU TRY TO RUN IT ON A 32-BIT.

Now, on to the actual review.

Pros:
-Unique game design
-You can literally pick any country you want, and play as that country for virtually all of time
-Huge variety of things to do (i.e. managing immigration policy, gun laws, family laws, race laws, religious laws, military laws, and foreign policy)
-Realistic government set-up
-Congressional votes
-Presidential Campaigns for re-election
-Wide variety of espionage options (i.e. assassinations, government moles)
-Ability to make any country into any government type (i.e. making the United States a totalitarian state, ruled by a ruthless dictator, banning free religion and speech. This cannot be done rapidly unless you want to put down civil revolts.)
-Wars are somewhat fun, but can get a tad repetitive if you like conquering the world.
-Nukes

Cons:
-One of the glitchiest games I have ever played.
-Absolutely NOT compatible Windows 32-bit of any kind.
-The Voices can get annoying.
-Some features may not work like they're supposed to.
-The face animation needs some work.
-The company that designed this game, Eversim, doesn't update it whatsoever.

Final Verdict: 7/10

If you can overlook the ocassional glitch, and you love Geo-political Simulators, then I definitely recommend this.

Regretting my decision to buy this.

Gameplay concepts are interesting, but the tutorial does next to nothing to teach you how to play the game. Nothing is explained past a couple of examples of how to introduce a piece of legislation into the parliament and how to order a military operation against a terrorist cell. Budgetary information is poorly presented, making it cryptically difficult to know what measures are affecting the bottom line and by how much. The UI is attrocious.

After a couple of hours poking around, I feel like I've made no progress whatsoever. I have no idea what to do, what I'm doing or what in the world is affecting what. It's a complete mess.

Although I have a degree of interest in politics and world affairs, I'm completely lost. I find that without a sufficiently solid understanding of economics, the player is going to miss out on a whole chunk of this games appeal.

Unless you're a student of economics and/politics, and can put up with a clunky interface, and occasional buggy elements that don't make much sense, steer clear of this one.

3/10

Despite all the negative reviews online, i decided to give this a try as it's exactly the kind of subject matter i've been wanting to explore in a video game. This game is a mixed bag. Not as bad as some are saying.

I expected a total mess of clutter and illogical AI. To my pleasure, the game is neither impossible to learn nor enjoy. There's actually quite a comprehensive and well thought-out simulation of running a modern state lurking under the poor graphics, cheap UI, uneven difficulty and mountains of stats. You'll certainly be kept busy with tons of decisions to make about laws, budgeting, trade, diplomacy etc.

I've seen reviews comparing this unfavourably to games like Superpower 2 and Supreme Ruler. I disagree - this game is definitely superior to either of those.

If the price were lower, i'd recommend it strongly to anyone interested in the subject matter. As it is, i'd say buy it only if you're really curious and have some cash to spare.
